What is BRT? Body Restoration Technique (BRT) is a non-invasive method of locating and removing energy blockages. BRT uses the body’s reflex points, which are similar to acupuncture points, to help understand why the body is not responding appropriately. BRT does not treat disease or symptoms but helps unblock energy flows to help the body function more appropriately to increase health and vitality.

Acupuncture points have been used for thousands of years to increase energy flows to different organs of the body. He found that if there were energy blockages preventing repair actions within the body then perhaps points could be triggered to increase energy flow and normalize repair functions. Dr. Berg found many acupressure points that could be triggered to stimulate nerve pathways within the body.

ALTERNATIVE ALLERGY ELIMINATION TECHNIQUE USING ACUPRESSURE POINTS:
The allergy elimination technique permanently eliminates any form of allergy or sensitivity. Originally derived from research using a Traditional Chinese Medicine approach, the treatment has advanced so that acupuncture needles are optional.

Chinese herbs and herbology:
Except for the use of a few well-known herbs such as Ginseng, Dong Quai, and Astragalus, Chinese herbology has been largely eclipsed by acupuncture.

Unlike common nutritional factors such as vitamins and minerals, herbal remedies help revitalize the organ system because they contain substances such as flavonoids, polysaccharides, glycosides, terpenes, alkaloids and resins which can either gently stimulate or calm.

Herbal therapy has been proven to help reverse health problems that result from emotional stress, chemical exposure, lack of balanced exercise and poor dietary habits. Research by scientists in Japan, China and the United States indicates that herbs improve immune system functioning and have antiviral, antifungal, and anti-tumor effects.
